Updating mirrored sliding closet doors

Not only is the vanity IN OUR BEDROOM, but look at those closet doors. The hardest part about this step is determining where you want the wallpaper on your door.I am not sure at what point in building it became a great idea to put the sink/mirror/closet right in the bedroom, but I know it was happening in the 90's. For me I knew I wanted it to be centered on the door.I started by measuring out the box and putting X’s where the corners would meet.

At the time I didn't know what I wanted to do with it, but one morning it hit me–CHANGE THE CLOSET DOORS! I used the same distance on the top and bottom that was a given on the side.Here is my assistant demonstrating how to measure for plumb.I used my nailgun and liquid nails to attach the trim.I think it would have been easier to do with two people. He held the doors up while I screwed the screws back in.I had a hard time holding the trim, measuring for level and plumb and using the nailgun. My assistant couldn't hold the level still enough to get a measurement.7. I found the easiest way to do this was to put the hardware back on the door and lightly tighten the screws then put it in back on the track and tighten all the way. I don't know if I will leave the insert white or not.
